Magzor Gyalmo, Shri Devi (English: Queen of the Weapon Army, Glorious Goddess): the younger sister and attendant to Mahakali Shri Devi (Tibetan: pal den lha mo) and the wrathful form of the goddess Sarasvati.
Tibetan: Magzor Gyalmo
Frightful in appearance, blue-black in colour, she has one face and two hands holding a skull mounted stick in the upraised right and a skullcup to the heart with the left. A peacock canopy hovers above the head. Seated atop a light brown mule wading through an ocean of blood she is surrounded by dark billowing clouds of smoke. A makara-faced attendant leads in front and a lion-faced attendant follows behind. At the top center is the very peaceful goddess Sarasvati, white in colour, holding a vina (stringed instrument). At the four corners are the main attendant retinue deities, the Queens of the Seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
